Costa Smeralda Review

Review of Costa Smeralda

The 2019-built Costa Smeralda cruise ship is from the new Helios-class vessels ordered by Carnival Corporation. The ship order agreement with Meyer Werft was signed in July 2015 and included the construction of all 4 new cruise ships. The contract was finalized in April 2016. Of these 4 vessels, 2 are for Costa Cruises and the other 2 for AIDA Cruises (Carnival's German brand). Other Excellence-Class liners (Costa Smeralda's sisterships) are Costa Toscana (2021), Carnival Mardi Gras (2021), Carnival Celebration (2022), Carnival Jubilee (2023), P&O Iona (2020), P&O Arvia (2022), AIDAnova (2018), AIDAcosma (2021).

The vessel (IMO number 9781889) is currently Italy-flagged (MMSI 247391900) and registered in Genoa.

History - construction and ownership

Costa Cruises is a Genoa-headquartered subsidiary company owned by Carnival Corporation. Costa is Europe's second-largest cruise line (after MSC) with year-round operations in the Mediterranean. Costa was founded in 1854 as a cargo shipping company. It started passenger shipping services in 1947, with regular Transatlantic crossings between Europe (Italy) and South America. In 2000, Costa Cruises was acquired by Carnival Corporation (shipowner).

Costa Smeralda cruise ship

The new Costa ships were scheduled for delivery in 2019 (Smeralda) and 2020 (Toscana). Costa's units were built in Turku Finland, AIDA's - in Papenburg Germany. Each unit has GT-tonnage 183,000 tons, 2600+ cabins, double-occupancy passenger capacity 5200+ (max 6600), crew capacity ~1700.

Ship's design features more efficient use of both indoor and open-deck spaces, with several multi-functional areas. Deck 16 is the activity deck with a water slide, water park, high rope garden, mini-golf. The pool deck is covered with a retractable glass roof. The Beach Club (adults only complex) is beneath the glass roof and features an activity area with 2 waterslides, rock climbing wall, sports deck area. This deck also has a giant LED wall for movies and other outdoor video entertainment. The ship has dedicated club lounges for teens and kids, including for toddlers.

The panoramic glass elevators also connect the outdoor areas. There is a 45-m above water level located glass-bottomed skywalk, huge wellness complex (Organic Spa and Fitness), a plaza with numerous bars and shops, Atrium Lobby lounge (meeting place with a stage for street performers), large-capacity Theater (show lounge).

 

The new Costa and AIDA sisterships are the industry's first fully LNG-powered cruise vessels, generating all of the onboard and propulsion power from LNG (abbrev Liquefied Natural Gas) - both in ports and at sea. With the new vessels, Costa Group had a fleet of 7 ships on order. This brand new fleet has a total capacity of 41,000 berths. In comparison, the combined Costa's fleet capacity is 110,000 berths.

The 4-vessel contract was part of a previously announced larger shipbuilding order with Fincantieri (Italy) and Meyer Werft for all 9 new vessels with scheduled deliveries between 2019 and 2022.

Managed by Costa Group, the Costa and AIDA combined fleet is Europe's largest. In 2014, one out of every two cruise ship tourists in Europe sailed on either AIDA or Costa ship. In 2015, Costa Group had 20 offices in 14 countries, around 27,000 shipboard employees and total passenger capacity of over 68,000 berths (across the combined fleet). Costa Group also is the leader of China's rapidly growing cruise market in Asia.

Besides the ship's staff and crew, Costa cruise passengers are also served by Peper robots - the latest cyborg technology implemented fleetwide in 2016. These humanoid robots greet and guide passengers upon embarkation. They also assist them throughout the cruise by providing information and tips on onboard dining, entertainment, enrichment program (workshops, pre-scheduled events), casino and shopping promotions, shore excursions and tours. Pepper robots are mobile and communicate in 3 languages (English, German, Italian). They can also interpret human emotions by analyzing voice tones and facial expressions.

Itineraries

Costa Smeralda itinerary program is based on 7-day Western Mediterranean cruises leaving roundtrip from homeports Civitavecchia-Rome, Savona, Barcelona, Marseille, La Spezia (Italy) and Palma de Mallorca (Majorca, Spain). To be able to handle the large cruise liner, Port Savona's terminal had to be modified.

The 7-day itinerary program was planned to start on October 20, 2020 (inaugural cruise) but was rescheduled for the period December 21 (2019) through May 16 (2020). The cruise liner leaves roundtrip out of Savona (departures on Saturdays), Marseille (on Sundays), Barcelona (on Mondays), Palma de Mallorca (on Tuesdays), Civitavecchia-Rome (on Thursdays) and La Spezia (on Fridays).

In the period December 3, 2020, and February 21, 2021, Costa scheduled for the Smeralda ship 7-day itineraries exclusively dedicated to Italy (passenger sourcing and call ports). The week-long voyages were planned as B2Bs (back-to-back itineraries) and optionally divided into two short cruises (3-day and 4-day) both departing from homeport Civitavecchia-Rome.

  • The 4-day itinerary visits Civitavecchia (Sundays), Naples (Mondays), Messina Sicily (Tuesdays), Cagliari (Wednesdays).
  • The 3-day itinerary visits Civitavecchia (Thursdays), La Spezia (Fridays), Savona (Saturdays).
  • The 7-day voyages were available for booking with departures from all ports in the itinerary.

Eventually, Smeralda had this itinerary program between March 27 and May 1, 2021. From May 1, the liner restarted the regular 7-day Western Mediterranean itineraries visiting Italy (Savona, Civitavecchia, Palermo Sicily), France (Marseille) and Spain (BarcelonaPalma de Mallorca).

On September 6, 2017, was the vessel's steel-cutting ceremony held at Meyer Turku shipyard in Perno Finland. The Smeralda ship was scheduled for delivery in October 2019, with sistership Costa Toscana following in 2021. Vessel's max draught is 8,6 m (28 ft). Its service/cruising speed is 17 knots (32 kph / 20 mph).

In February 2018, the shipbuilder Meyer Turku contracted ALMACO Group to supply the liner's galley equipment. This deal was the company's first contract with Costa Cruises and also its largest cruise ship galley equipment order. ALMACO Group is a full-service provider of marine vessel cabins (passengers and crew living quarters), wet units, galleys (kitchens), provision stores.

Costa Smeralda cruise ship construction

On July 4, 2018, at Meyer Turku was held the traditional coin ceremony, during which commemorative coins were positioned along the keel for good fortune. Ceremony's godmother was Elisabetta Moraci (28-year-old, serving Costa Cruises as Second Deck Officer). Ship's launch ceremony (float-out from drydock) was on March 15, 2019, attended by Neil Palomba (Costa Cruises President) and Jan Meyer (Meyer Turku's CEO). The christening ceremony was scheduled for October 22, 2019, to be held in Port Rotterdam (Holland). In November 16-23, 2019, the vessel successfully passed sea trials.

Liner's namesakes are the ferry ship Cruise Smeralda (1997, GRIMALDI LINES) and MV Esmeralda (1979-built riverboat). Cruise ship's decks are named after famous Italian cities - from Palermo (deck 4) to Trieste (deck 20), The "social heart" of the liner is "Colosseo" - midship show lounge (on 3 levels) featuring large LED screens on its walls and dome. Also new for the fleet is Costa Design Museum - sized 400 m2 and curated by Matteo Vercelloni (Italian designer and architect).

The cruise ship is named after Costa Smeralda (translated "Emerald Coast") which is an approx 20 km (12 mi) long coastal area in northern Sardinia Island (Italy). The scenic coast is lined up with white-sand beaches, premium golf courses, top-luxury hotels, large yacht marinas, private jet and helicopter services. As a vacation destination, Sardinia's Costa Smeralda attracts mainly affluent tourists, including many celebrities. As a residential location, Costa Smeralda is currently ranked Europe's most expensive, with house prices up to EUR 300,000+ per m2 - or USD 4+ million for a 100 m2 (1076 ft2) house property. The largest seaside resort towns are Porto Cervo and Romazzino. Porto Cervo is often visited by some of the world's largest megayachts.

The liner was officially delivered by Meyer Turku to Costa Group on December 5, 2019.

 

Like most large-sized newbuilds, the Costa ship Smeralda is LNG-powered, with 4x Caterpillar Marine LNG engines (model MaK 16M-46DF) generating combined output 57,2 MW. The propulsion system is based on two Azimuting thrusters with combined power output 37 MW. The ship has 3 LNG tanks (cryogenic steel) with total capacity ~3200 m3. Two of the tanks are larger (length 35 m, diameter 8 m, LNG capacity 1525 m3), while the 3rd tank has length 28 m, diameter 5 m and capacity 520 m3. Smeralda's first LNG-bunkering (fueling) was conducted on December 18, 2019, in Port Barcelona.

The christening ceremony was held in Port Savona on February 22, 2020. The naming ceremony was led by Godmother Penelope Cruz Sanchez (1974-born Spanish actress and fashion model) and also attended by Michael Thamm (Costa Group's CEO), Neil Palomba (Costa Cruises' President), Paolo Benini (ship's Captain / Master) and Bruno Barbieri (Italian Michelin-star Chef). The special event continued with an acrobatic show (Viktor Klee production staged in the Colosseo Theatre) and ended with a fireworks show launched from a barge ship in front of Fortezza del Priamar (Fortress).
